BOSTON (CBS) – The NHL Trade deadline is still over a month away, but it’s never too early for the rumors to start swirling.
But as Frank Servalli of The Daily News notes, Briere has a full no-trade clause and doesn’t sound all that open to waiving it.
Briere would be a great addition to any playoff team, as he touts 108 points in 109 career playoff games, including eight goals in 11 playoff tilts last season.
With the Flyers currently 10th in the Eastern Conference, they will likely be sellers come the deadline despite recently acquiring Simon Gagne from the Los Angeles Kings.
But if Briere doesn’t want to go anywhere, he has that choice. And it sounds like he’ll still be sporting a Flyers’ sweater at 3:01 p.m. on April 3.
